BioMar Establishes Aquaculture Research Initiative in Chile

13 October 2016

CHILE - BioMar has signed an agreement to purchase and use 30 per cent of the Lenca research center from Aquainnovo, Chile, broadening its network of excellence research centers around the world and allowing the continued development of functional fish feeds.

The Chilean contract-research center will be renamed Aquaculture Technology Center Patagonia (ATC Patagonia).

Its current design and flexibility allows for running a broad range of trials on different species and nutritional projects for developing high performance feeds, testing of new raw materials as well as exploring new nutritional solutions and sustainable diets.

Existing capacity of this technology center also allows research based on genetic resistance challenges and pathogen and parasites trials for therapeutic and preventive treatments.

Furthermore, the center allows for gaining new knowledge on recirculation technology systems, assessment of chemical products, development of vaccines and product registration studies in general.

ATC Patagonia will help to accelerate the exchange of knowledge in BioMar´s Salmon Division and thus provide solutions in every area of development to their global customers, in order to satisfy their needs in a quick and flexible way.
